In a thick and challenging way, we examined the Parable of the Sower and Soils including Jesus’ explanation on Sunday.
A few conclusions we made were:
– The Seed is the Word which is both Jesus and the Bible.
– The key to being good soil is faith in the unfaltering truth of God’s Word.
– Fruit is actually an “edible seed packet” and it’s purpose is to reproduce more plants to make more fruit!
– When we observe that parable of the soils we see that many Christians are stuck in the thorns!
“these are the ones who have heard the Word, but the worries of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.” -Mark 4:18-19
As the people of God known as the Los Altos Grace Brethren Church our mission is to share the Good News about Jesus with people from all walks of life, teaching those who believe to pattern their lives after the life of Christ by gathering them into communities that foster an atmosphere of togetherness and commonality in which each individual enjoys deep, growing, abiding relationships with God and others.
As we touch lives -- God changes the world!
